Vegan Spring Quinoa

Vegan Spring Quinoa

It’s official.  Even though I am not sure the weather got the memo yet, it’s Spring!!  And it’s the most popular topic of conversation for every person in North America.  The idea of wearing short sleeves has never been more exciting.  (Like, seriously, I can not wait) And I am so excited that I had

Vegan Falafel Salad

Vegan Falafel Salad

I am such a sucker for falafel.  It’s one of my favorite foods (if you are keeping count I have a lot of favorites, clearly I really love food).  Over the weekend we walked passed by a falafel place and then I couldn’t get falafel out of my brain.  Did I mention I love food?

Green Orange Juice

Green Orange Juice

I have been getting the most beautiful citrus fruit lately.  And sometimes I love cutting it up and eating it like a salad (grapefruit segments with maple syrup and walnuts is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to grapefruit for breakfast).  And other times I am less motivated and I just want yummy

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

A while back the weirdest thing ever happened to me.  I started to love exercise.  I went from the wake-up-as-late-as-I-can-get-away-with (I was serious about getting every last minute of sleep) to getting up early to work out.  Which is seriously something I never ever thought I would do. (Ok, I am still serious about my sleep,

This recipe is my jam right now.  I must be really looking forward to the weather warming up because raw salads (like this one) and slaws are currently my favorite foods. I am also really obsessed with the savory/sweet combo of adding fruit to savory dishes lately. I was so excited when I cut into

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocados are, in my opinion, one of the most perfect foods ever.  And I have been making this mayo alternative with them for years, I am pretty obsessed with it. Actually, once I decided to actually write down and share the recipe, I did a side by side comparison of this to “regular” mayo.  It

Gluten Free Pizza (English Muffin Style)

Gluten Free Pizza (English Muffin Style)

Some weeks my favorite thing to do is come home from work and tinker in the kitchen.  There are times that I find it relaxing and comforting and it is kind of my way to unwind. Then I also have times when the most comforting thing to me is being able to make a healthy

Vegan Asian Soup

Vegan Asian Soup

I suddenly found myself staring down a refrigerator that was so full of produce that I could barely shut it on Saturday morning.  I chose to ignore that and went about my normal routine: a smoothie, and the newest episode of Jamie’s 15 minute meals.  If you have been around the blog for a while

Pasta with Green Beans and Chili Garlic Sauce

Pasta with Green Beans and Chili Garlic Sauce

This winter has certainly been a snowy one.  My driveway is resembling an ice fortress straight off the set of Frozen.  Clearly the marketing department at Disney has been hard at work making it an icy, snowy winter to promote the movie.  I did see it twice, so I guess it’s working!!  (Oops, my Disney

Date Night Kale Salad (vegan)

Date Night Kale Salad (vegan)

With Valentine’s Day coming up this week, I just had to make some kind of dish with dates.  I love puns too much to pass up on this opportunity. A couple of weeks ago I took a work trip to Nashville, where I had a kale salad that I have been completely obsessed with ever
